Did you know Hireko offers a full line of specialty ferrules to re-shaft a number of name brand clubs and do it the right way?  Well, we do!  A few companies such as Callaway, Nike, Ping and TaylorMade require specialty ferrules other than what are commonly found. The reason is many of the heads are counter-bored and requires part of the ferrule to fit inside the hosel or the outside diameter of the hosel is larger than normal and requires a special ferrule.

While our catalog and website explain what specialty ferrule goes into what models, there are a few additions I would like to add to those.  For example, the ferrule for the TaylorMade R7 irons will not only fit the R7 and the R9, but also the newer Burner irons too.  The specialty ferrule for many of the Callaway woods will also fit the Diablo and the FT-9.

Many of the OEM clubs use .350” shafts but many of our replacement wood ferrules are sized to allow the use of 0.335” which are more common and offer a wider variety.  Aside from the product specific model, we offer a generic 0.350” shaft conversion ferrule to use a 0.335” shaft.  However, we do stock the popular replacement models from Callaway, Ping and TaylorMade to use the original 0.350” shaft size as well.

We even offer ferrules for face angle or called “clock” ferrule.  The 2º Ferrule for TaylorMade (& Ping) woods as well as the 2º Ferrule for Callaway woods fit most of the newer models.  By rotating the ferrule into the head you are able to change the face angle instead of accepting how it came from the factory.  Instructions are included, but make sure to use the flap and the alignment line marked on these unique ferrules to alter the lie and effective loft via face angle.

So next time you have a re-shaft of a name brand driver you can re-shaft with confidence and do it right the first time.

    Jeff, I have a new Titleist 910 #2 driver. I want to put either a Aldila Voodoo or a Grafalloy High Launch shaft in it. Is there an after market adaptor to fit the new driver or do I have to go to Titleist? Same with the R9?

  2. Jeff Summitt says:

    Tommy:

    There is no aftermarket adapter available to fit the new Titleist series. However, we do have one for the R9 located at this link:

  3. John Panzer says:

    Jeff, I was just looking at the ferrule for the Taylor Made woods, I want to keep the shaft that came with my R7 and change the Driver head (which is .335) Will that ferrule work with any component head?

  4. Jeff Summitt says:

    John:

    The shaft in your R7 will be 0.350″ if it is not the TP version or had been re-shafted. The ferrule for the R7 will only work on select TaylorMade heads and the 0.350″ shaft will not fit any of our component drivers or fairways which require 0.335″ shafts.

  5. Chuck Ala says:

    I have a left handed Calloway Tour X #4 iron. I would like to put a right handed Acer club head on it. Can it be done and how do I do it. I’m in Afghanistan and someone gave me this club. I want to keep swinging a club until I go home on leave. (There are no golf courses in Afghanistan but ther are plenty in Dubai)

  6. Jeff Summitt says:

    Chuck:

    Unfortunately the tip size of the Callaway Tour X iron (0.355″ taper) is not designed to fit any of our irons with a 0.370″ parallel hosel. The epoxy won’t hold unless you created a shim to fill up the gap. But it would require heating the hosel of the Callaway iron with a propane torch to break the epoxy bond loose (assuming this is a steel shaft), cleaning off all the old epoxy and reapplying some high impact epoxy. A ferrule typically goes above the hosel on our irons so that would need to be slide onto the shaft beforehand, but it is strictly cosmetic if you are just looking to keep your swing grooved until you are able to come back home safe and sound.

  7. Blake A says:

    I have a ping g10 I would like to reshaft with the proforce 7070s stiff shaft. I was wondering what the tip diameter is. Is it. 350, and will I have to trim the tip and if so how much? I think standard tip trim on proforce is 1″. Basically I just need to know how to reshaft it. Thanks!

  8. Jeff Summitt says:

    Blake:

    You actually have an option even though the original shaft in the club is 0.350″. Regardless you will need an adapter ferrule which fits down inside the hosel. We have two adapter ferrules to choose from. The model BB010 allows for 0.335″ shafts and the BB011 allows for 0.350″ shafts.

  9. Dan Gawrys says:

    I have an iron head for a callaway x-forged 8 iron, (2007). how can I find out what the shaft size is? thanks

  10. Jeff Summitt says:

    Dan:

    It is always best to double check by measuring yourself because they always could have been re-shafted before in which someone could have re-bored the irons. But the stock set up on the X-Forged would have been 0.355″ taper tip.

  11. Dean says:

    I have a calaway Razr grafite shaft from a 3-high bread. I want to know if it will fit on a older Tayloremade 7-wood it’s a V-Steel head

  12. Jeff Summitt says:

    Dean,

    I don’t believe you can, but double check the tip diameter of the shaft pulled from the Razr Fit. If it is 0.370″, then it won’t, but 0.350″ you could. Lastly, if it is 0.350″, you may have to make sure you have enough shaft length to reach your desired or original playing length.

  13. Larry Nix says:

    Jeff,
    I have a Callaway FT9 and would like to put a Fujikura E260 shaft on it. Can this be done and how.

  14. Jeff Summitt says:

    Larry,

    You would use the item #GDW1005 (for use with a 0.335″ shaft) or the GDW1006 (0.350″ shaft). You’ll have heat the head, but you have to be very careful about the carbon graphite crown. You can spray a product called Cool Gel that you can pick up at a welding supply store on the carbon crown only to protect it. If you don’t, concentrate the heat low on the face and sole to break the epoxy bond loose. You might put a wet rag on the crown to keep it cool. Don’t take off the ferrule; you can push it and the head off at the same time with a good shaft puller.

  15. Ryan says:

    I have DG S300’s in my 2012 TM TP MC’s. I’m going to change shafts from the S300’s to the PX 6.0 (.355). I have two questions: first are the TM MC hosels .355 and second if so what ferrule size would I use?

  16. Jeff Summitt says:

    Ryan,

    Yes, the TP version is taper tip. The ferrule I would suggest is this one:

  17. Jeff Summitt says:

    Ryan,

    In some cases the collar is a preference. Many of the TaylorMade irons are counterbored and thus the collar helps fill in the void.

  18. Tino says:

    Hi Jeff, I have TaylorMade Burner 2.0 steel irons. I looking into re-shafting but am having trouble locating specs on hosels. Also, would TM R7 specialty ferrule be needed and/or fit?. Thank you!

  19. Jeff Summitt says:

    Tino,

    The TM Burner 2.0 irons will require 0.370″ shafts. Yes, you will need the R7 specialty ferrule as the top of the interior hosel will be counterbored.
